What is bullying and why do bullies bully?
Aggressive or dominating behavior is often displayed by teenagers and can continue over a lifetime in abusive relationships. Such a primitive psychological defense mechanism finds roots in an attempt to control disturbing feelings.
Many times a bully is seeking power, especially if they did not receive a sense of security or empowerment at home. When parents or caregivers attempt control children by creating fear or shame, perhaps the smaller, more scared children or those with deeper emotional insecurities become victims, while others will hide behind their discomforts by showing abusing behaviors and exploiting other kids’ insecurities.
Join Dr. Sadigh and his special guest Sandra Dupont, LMFT to find out how the bully and the bullied respond in relationship with self and others. Learn what needs must be met in order to prevent bullying. Sandra specializes in supporting teens and their parents in understanding and addressing the issues teens face today.
Sandra Dupont has advanced training in adolescent psychology & mental development, Family Systems, Child Advocacy, Respectful Parent Training, Working Effectively with Burned-Out Parents, as well as nine years experience as a practicing counselor for families with teens.

his morning i was reading and came across that Nebraska is suing Colorado over marijuana.
In a statement and subsequent news conference Thursday, Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said Colorado's marijuana legalization has adversely affected his state. Colorado pot is turning up in Nebraska, he said, resulting in an increase in marijuana-related arrests on his state's western border.
"Nebraska taxpayers have to bear the cost," Bruning said, in comments reported by the Omaha World-Herald. "We can't afford to divert resources to deal with Colorado's problem."
"Federal law undisputedly prohibits the production and sale of marijuana," Bruning added in a statement. "Colorado has undermined the United States Constitution, and I hope the U.S. Supreme Court will uphold our constitutional principles."
im going on record i hate Nebraska!! when i was there 3 years ago on the mhh tour i got arrested twice for marijuana. your attorney general is a assclown who is ignorant and has no interest in facts. spending your tax dollars arresting people smoking marijuana is just plain stupid and unnecessary.
i live in california and i get my weed delivered to my door legally everyday and have lost focus that in Nebraska people are in fear of going to jail over a harmless plant and the cancer patients face prison terms for treating there illness
i have decided to move to Nebraska and head up there dysfunctional normal offices and i will get marijuana legalization on the ballot for 2016 and also put john brunning out of office
Nebraska we are coming to help because this lawsuit is the last straw Colorado will not be bullied by some ignorant farmer who's only excuse for marijuana being illegal is that he is old school
As a child, I often felt that I was alone in an insane world. At home there was constant fighting. At school I was bullied on a daily basis because I was overweight. Things became progressively worse at home and I was eventually placed in foster care. Life was hard and, although my natural state was to be happy and playful, I was always very sad. At sixteen, I found a used guitar for $20 and started singing and writing songs as a way of dealing with the pain. I then discovered Music Therapy, which became my passion and focus of study, only to realize that I was destined to heal myself and others through the power of song. I became determined to overcome my personal struggles and to create beauty wherever I could, breaking the patterns of abuse and speaking up for what I felt was right.
In my twenties, I took my guitar and started backpacking around the world. Since then, my travels have allowed me to work with people of all cultures and faiths, focusing on projects that make a difference. I've volunteered with the United Nations and have had the opportunity to perform with rock n' roll legends. Many of my songs can be found on charity compilations, humanitarian & environmental films and cause-related campaigns. And I've done it all without any record label, manager, agent or financial backing for my career. I've dedicated my life to this work because I believe that music is one of the greatest medicines. It's become my life's mission to uplift and inspire people with hope for the future and to transform reality for the better.

On December 3, 12-year-old Ronin Shimizu, a former 6th grader enrolled at Folsom Middle School, committed suicide after schoolmates had bullied him for being a cheerleader.
According to the CDC, suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year.
Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University.
A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying
10 to 14 year old girls may be at even higher risk for suicide, according to the study above
According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying
